In Mainstream Ethics (ética corriente) Tato Laviera explores the geographic and linguistic imperatives of Hispanics in the United States. Whereas in the past Laviera redirected Hispanics to invest culture and emotion in the reality of the Metropolis, in Mainstream Ethics he affirms that Hispanic language and lore, art and history are transforming the national culture and identity of the United States. It is not the role of Hispanics to follow the dictates of a shadowy norm, an illusive main stream, but to remain faithful to their collective and individual identities… to either lay claim to mainstream territory or disprove its very existence.
